What Now?


I’m losing my shit with cabin fever and the uncertainty caused by the coronavirus. I call out to God, “What do I do now?” “God answers, “Go to Ace Hardware with your wife.

Why Things Are This Way


A Simple Reflection On Our Situation Some people are saying this is “the end of days” as prophesied in the bible. I don’t believe it, but I have a great big question.
